I am so excited to finally share one of the projects I have been working on!
This idea came to me a while ago when I realized there wasn't really much out there to prepare my boys for what they will experience while we are traveling. I wanted to show them what to expect when we are in the airport and in our vacation destinations. (As a teacher, I always recommended parents make family trips as educational as possible -especially when students were missing class to go away! This includes learning about where you are going.)
I found an awesome artist who worked with me to create child-friendly, realistic images to go along with the vocabulary. After printing, they are laminated (because every flash card I have ever bought JD has been folded up, ripped, and eaten), and I bound them together with ribbon. The first set (in what will hopefully become a big "What Will I See" series) is called "Airport ABC". For each letter of the alphabet, there is something you will see in an airport, so children can learn the vocabulary and familiarize themselves with the images before travel and even play I Spy at the airport. Next up, I am working on "NYC ABC".
This giveaway has ended, but you can now find the cards in my Etsy shop!
